Jose Mourinho: Manchester United the Premier League's 'unluckiest team'

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has described his side as "the unluckiest team in the Premier League" following their 1-1 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford on Saturday.

United were on course for three points after Juan Mata's strike midway through the second half, but were denied with a minute remaining as substitute Olivier Giroud snatched a point for the Gunners.

Mourinho was very pleased with his players, who he felt dominated the eagerly anticipated contest, but was made to rue his side's lacking of a clinical edge in front of goal.

"We were the best team by far," he said. "I don't want to say they didn't want to win, I prefer to say they had no chances to win.

"They could not be Arsenal the way they normally play. We were phenomenal from a defensive point of view.

"The way we pressed, the way we were very strong, the way we controlled their counter attacks, the way we controlled their best players. We were phenomenal.

"I am really happy with the team, but at the moment I consider us the unluckiest team in the Premier League because it is the reality."

Mourinho added: "If you analyse the last three matches. Against Stoke we have to win 5-0 or 6-0 and we draw. Against Burnley we have to win 5-0 or 6-0 and we draw and today we have to win 2-0 or 3-0 and we draw.

"We are the unluckiest team but the team is playing well, the players are working really well."
